FISHING AND HUNTING NOTES Itaro fish were taken in the season just closed at Catalina, Cal., among them the dolphin, the yellow fin tuna, confused by anglers with the albacore, and the real tuna ami the frigate mackerel, a fish that resembles the skipjack. John Fruse of Park Rapids, Minn., while engaged in spearing fish through the ice at a lake near ids home, recently captured two of the largest Great Northern pike ever recorded in that section. One fish weighed twenty -five and the other twenty-six pounds. A report from Key West, Florida, states that an attempt will be mndc this year to interest anglers who view the tarpon merely as a sporting fish, to consider it as a table fish. Tiic tarpon, however, will suffer by comparison with the present array of Florida food fishes. Herbert A. Fagler, hunting on Chathams Run, Pa., at dusk, shot a bear with the one shot he had and when he got near lie found the bear ready to fight, the animal having only been wounded. As the bear came at lilin he swung his guu, hitting the animal on the noee. Then he ran. The next morning he went back to the scene of ills encounter and found the bear Mead.
